100% of Donations Made via the PickleJar Live App to Benefit The Folded Flag Foundation
NASHVILLE, TN, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — PickleJar, the live entertainment and artist payments app, announces today that it will support Lee Brice’s Memorial Day Celebration, sponsored by O’Charley’s Restaurant + Bar and Coca-Cola, an event that will be aired on radio stations across the country throughout the holiday weekend.
Listeners can tune into the celebration for free on their local radio stations and are encouraged to donate to The Folded Flag Foundation via PickleJar while hearing hits from Lee Brice and other artists. Fans can also donate by visiting giveforheroes.com. Folded Flag is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides educational scholarships and supports grants to the families of fallen U.S. service members.
“The Lee Brice Memorial Day Celebration intersects PickleJar’s two biggest passions: celebrating artists and mobilizing donations to worthy recipients,” said Jeff James, CEO of PickleJar. “We couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to play a role in this inspiring campaign.”
In addition to the radio special, O’Charley’s employees will also be wearing t-shirts during Memorial Day weekend featuring PickleJar’s intelligent QR code technology that restaurant patrons can use to access the PickleJar app to participate in the event.
“Anyone who knows me and my music knows that I take supporting our veterans and Gold Star families very seriously,” said Lee Brice. “Those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country deserve nothing short of our utmost respect. The mission of Folded Flag is a sacred one for me, and that’s why I’ve become such a vocal champion of their work. This Memorial Day Celebration is going to be a blast for listeners, and I hope they will donate what they can to such a great nonprofit.”
The Lee Brice Memorial Day Celebration event was created in partnership with PickleJar, GMC Nashville, O’Charley’s and Coca-Cola.
PickleJar is available for IOS and Android smartphones. Their intelligent QR code technology is in use at select venues nationwide and fundraising events which allows participants to send monies in support of musicians and charitable events without having to download the app. Most importantly, PickleJar’s TipShare feature means the funds are automatically routed to the intended organization and they receive 100% of the funds.
